Chocolate cake is favorite in my family! And when it comes to Birthday parties at the house, I make sure there is always a homemade cake!

Chocolate Cake with Cocoa Roasted Almonds

The basic cake recipe is inherited…

…from my grandma. I will never forget the measurements that she taught me when I was a little girl. I make this cake every time off the top of my head.:-) You know, it’s kind of like the ABC’s… you memorized it once, and you will never forget!

The cake recipe is a simple white cake recipe, but I added cocoa powder to the batter this time as my hubby loves chocolate cake. And yes, now you know that it was my husband’s birthday this past weekend. My guy is truly the best partner, friend and the greatest dad in the world, so he does deserve this phenomenal cake!

My boys visited Hungary for spring break, and they happened to arrive back to the US on their dad’s birthday. How fun! So I had to make sure I’d have something yummy for them upon their return and their dad, of course, to celebrate his B-day!

Chocolate cakes are always a big hit in my home. I am myself a big chocolate cake lover too (well actually I’m a sucker for just about anything chocolate!). And of course, I love to spend time in the kitchen, so it was a pure pleasure to put this gorgeous cake together on a Friday morning.

This gorgeous chocolate cake is so easy to make. I used my grandma's recipe. This chocolate cake is fluffy and you can fill it with your favorite cream!

And here is my grandma’s famous chocolate cake recipe

  1. Happy Birthday to your hubby! My sweetheart has a birthday next week and I hadn’t thought about baking the cake myself! I think I’ll have to try this recipe while she’s at work just to make sure I CAN bake a cake lol. If it works out, I’ll bake it again for her birthday and let you know how it turns out!
